Rick et al...

There are several important films on the archive in the open movies section of atomic tests such as "OPERATION greenhouse", the uploaders "Nuclear Weapons Vault" are claiming some sort of license control over use of the film, can this be valid?

I don't have time to look through all of these right now, but if they are unaltered uploads of government-produced works, I have a hard time imagining that anyone can assert control over how they are used.

The films in question are still tagged with the following: The license holder of this film insists that any site (or individuals) linking or independently displaying through any Internet protocol to this film, to visibly, clearly and fully credit in text this organization ["Nuclear Weapons Vault"] on any pages linked, for providing this film: "Provided by the Nuclear Weapons Vault" This license does NOT allow derivations or alterations of this film. This license does NOT allow use of any portion of this film as part of other films, and this license does NOT allow artistic or technical alterations or commercial uses. This license does NOT allow this film to be displayed other than its entirety in the final forms of the files posted at Archive.org.

I can't see how this can be possible?

Any updates to this?

The website that links to them doesn't exist, I can;t find a company by the same name, and there is no contact info for the author.
